Default A c-pd with less fade would be...?

I know teebirds are supposed to maintain hss while eventually having some of the fade beaten out of them. I like my two c-pd's, but wondering if they will maintain hss and eventually lose fade since they're supposedly the "longer teebird." If not, is there another disc that has that great hss but less turn? A p-pd maybe? Thunderbird? Something else?

I'd guess most PPD's will have some turn out of the box or else develop some pretty quick. Maybe an SPD although I don't throw a lot of PDs so someone else on here may know better. I'd say Thunderbird would probably be my choice.

How far do you throw Teebirds/C-PD's and distance drivers?

I personally don't think S or C PD's are the fadeless disc of claims unless severely beat and/or you have a pretty decent arm.

Lucid Escapes are a nice compliment to C-PDs.

Most runs of C-PD will eventually beat into a place where they lose very little HSS, but will start to lose that hard fade and develop more of a forward fade. That could definitely take a while though, especially depending on which runs you're throwing.

If you're looking for a PD-like disc with less fade, the S-PD is a logical choice. Even better if you can find pat#'s since the newer S-lines seem to pickup a little bit of turn fairly quickly. Either way though, fresh S-PDs still have solid HSS with less LSS than the C-PDs start off with.

Just beat on a C-PD. It'll get there... Eventually.

I honestly don't know how far I'm throwing. The course I play doesn't have distances marked. Have two escapes, one fusion and one fluid- both 172's, I believe. The fusion turns too much and the fluid turns a little and then fades at the end almost as much as a pd. Goes a bit further, though...

Nice to see someone verify that a c-pd might lose some fade without picking up a bunch of turn. That's ultimately what I'd like to have in the bag.

I wouldn't do a ppd for that. Those will inevitably develop turn AND lose fade. (Can be useful to bag in a cycle however.)

But yeah once a cpd get to that spot it's awesome and will stay there, but it takes time. But a spd will get there quicker and even starting with less fade while maintaining that good high speed stability.

Keep in mind if you're living at high elevation you may have your discs act much more stable than most people are used to.

I can vouch for S-PD losing the hooking fade while still having good HSS/minor hint of turn, and being less beefy than C-PD, but I still believe they take a good arm to get to do that properly.
